WINE REVIEW

With an impressive 44 months of lees ageing, Albourne’s signature Cuvée is a blend of their finest Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris base wines.

The Estate Premier Cuvée has a beautiful bouquet of rich, concentrated fruit aromas. Ripe, fleshy peach, hints of tropics and light floral notes are matched with more weighty, bready aromas.

An exquisite palate awaits, beginning with crunchy apples and citrus zest before a deep ripe stone fruit richness opens up.

The modest dosage (6g/l) lets the fruit take centre stage here, however, what impressed me was the length and the more profound yeasty complexity on the finish.
